So sorry you lost your Daddy. It is so hard for me to believe he is gone. I remember so many times when we were all at the lake together. He always had such a dry sense of humor. Your great memories of him will keep him with you always. You are all in my heart and in my prayers this week and for the weeks to come. I love you all.

All my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. We shared so many great memories through the years, and I have nothing but love and gratitude for your mom and dad. They were a second set of parents for me during all those Impressionable years, and I will always hold those memories dear to my heart. No words can ever fill your loss, but I hope you will smile to know how much your dad touched my life, and like all of your family, he will always be in my heart.
Love and Blessings to you
